    hey just just wanted to pick your brains, I know I search on here and there are so many posts regarding this, I just wanted some new opinions

    Just pick up a 2.3 whipple, it comes with:


    Sct ba2600
    80l deka injectors

    I really don’t want to go the return less route, id like to hit 600hp if possible

    So far the car has
    Accufab mono
    Jlt CAI
    Kooks longtubes and midpipe
    Bassani catback

    What other supports mods do you guys recommend? Pulley size etc

    Thanks!

    get yourself a 40A boost a pump, stick around a 3.5 or 3.25 pulley for 16-17 lbs, dependant on fuel octane. if i were you save for a fore return fuel system.

    16lbs of boost on a 2.3 whipple? No thank you. Don't get upset if a upper lower ported eaton car is next to you when you race. Just my opinion lol. Doesn't matter as long as you are happy

    Personally I'd step up the pumps instead of the BAP. You can run GT pumps in a stock hat.

    Went from a ported Eaton to a Whipple and stayed conservative with the 15PSI pulley since my tune didn't have to change. Also have been a big supporter of the BAP since it just plain works. Didn't waste money on headers, but have a whole new engine with plenty of other upgrades including ported heads and custom pistons. It's a rocket that is a blast to drive (zero interest in racing either).

    Lots of detail in here, along with a PDF of the Whipple install manual: Engine

    Those LT's are going to drop your boost levels a c-hair. I'd think you'd need closer to 18-19psi on 93 to confidently scratch at 600. Might need to consider a 2 or 4lb crank pulley to get the desired boost. I'm not as familiar with the Whipple's, however, so I can't speak with total confidence regarding pulley combos. BAP works great if you don't want to mess with swapping pumps, but be sure to do the beefier wiring kit to keep the voltage up in higher RPM's. It's $50 at Lethal Performance and it's a wise investment in my opinion.
